J.U.G.S. is a non-profit cancer support organization founded by Lynn Nordland. During her own battle with cancer Lynn was inspired to started J.U.G.S. when she saw a lack of support and resources for fellow Alaskan cancer patients. J.U.G.S (Just Us Girls Support) mission is to provide hope, activities, and resources to women (and soon men) in Alaska who have been diagnosed with cancer.
The funding we receive is used to directly support cancer patients and survivors and their families in Alaska. Our goals are to grow into surrounding communities, building a Resource Guide that can be accessible on a large database website, and being able to offer tele-health counseling. Thieve resources will help guide physicians, cancer patients, survivors and families.
J.U.G.S. event coordinator Christian Mulkey aka Mrs. Alaska America 2020 holds meetings monthly throughout the year in a supportive environment to engage with women who have been diagnosed with cancer. At these meetings, the women participate in various activities with other women who know why they are facing or have faced. These events encourage a positive and healing environment that bring women with cancer together. Refreshments and a take home craft or souvenirs are included in these monthly activities.
This non-profit was founded in 2018 and HELIOFEST is honored to support Lynn Nordland and J.U.G.S. on its endeavor to raise funding to help those in need in our own community. Our goal is to provide patients and their families with monthly support meetings, resource guide with tele-health counseling and care packages.
